In-cam­era Black & white mode vs RAW

Practical Photography (UK) - - Mono Masterclass -

Most dig­i­tal cam­eras have the op­tion to out­put files in black & white. This can be a use­ful tool for re­view­ing each shot to see if it works as a mono image, but has its lim­i­ta­tions in terms of the fi­nal pho­to­graph. For a start, out­putting in mono only means that you may not be able to con­vert the image back to colour if you de­sire. But most im­por­tantly, no mat­ter how good a cam­era’s pro­cess­ing is, it can­not com­pete with ded­i­cated edit­ing for mono us­ing all of the data con­tained in a RAW file.
